A Warning from Jesus

There are two paths before you; you may take only one path. One doorway is narrow. And one door is wide. Go through the narrow door. For the wide door leads to a wide path, and the wide path is broad; the wide, broad path is easy, and the wide, broad, easy path has many, many people on it; but the wide, broad, easy, crowded path leads to death. Now then that narrow door leads to a narrow road that in turn leads to life. It is hard to find that road. Not many people manage it.The Voice  Matthew 7:13-14

Jesus came to show us the way to His Father.  He is, and was compassionate to those who had lost their way in this world. However, He also told them to turn from their sinful ways and follow Him. The rich man was willing to follow but when He asked the man to give up his wealth the man went away, unwilling or unable to divest himself of what he'd gained in this world. 

The woman at the well however, when told to sin no more, went and shared Jesus' teaching and many came to know Him. Both were given a choice. One trusted Jesus and turned away from her former life. One chose life. One chose death. 

We each make that decision. No matter how old or how long we have wandered on the wide path, we can choose the narrow path. Have you chosen?

 If not, we're a group of people encouraging each other to remain on the narrow path and lighting the way to all to find Jesus. The Christ, the Messiah, our Redeemer.
